Conference Offering.   

1/2 of our 2017 EFC-MAYM Ministry Conference offering will go to help purchase new vehicles for EFM Missionaries. EFM is currently raising funds to purchase used but good condition vehicles for five of our missionaries: Adhikari, Badgley, India, Retnaraj, and Sarkar. This project is a special high-cost need that will help our missionaries in each of their fields to effectively accomplish their ministry in getting to hard to reach places with the gospel.  The other 1/2 of the offering will be given to EFC-MAYM Home Missions Board for the Journey Internship Program.  This is an 8 week immersive experience that allows the participants to integrate discipleship principles in real life scenarios.  Some individuals participated this summer and the hope is that this type of internship will continue in years to come. 


  • Display tables at Ministry Conference can be reserved as you register, or may be requested by contacting Janet at 316-267-0391 or
